    I was playing around with remote access to 3CX. Since local access no longer makes use of a browser and the manual (page 17) shows to use the format http://phone-system/Management or http://phone-system/5481 . " phone-system" being the name of the PC running 3CX. I tried all variations to no avail. First off I found Firefox attempting to add www. and .com., that was correctable in the Firefox settings.

    I ended up trying the old bookmarked http://192.168.XXX.XXX:5481/MainForm.wgx , which, to my surprise, worked just fine.

    Local access works fine with a browser.

    phone-system will only work if that is the machine name of your system or if you replace phone-system with the actual IP address. It is probably assumed that you would figure that out.

    Probably more related to how IP resolution is set up in your network (DNS/WINS/NetBIOS). If you want to use the machine name rather than its IP address, and you are inside the firewall, you may need to specify the fully-qualified name, e.g. mypbx.mydomain.local.

    I actually prefer to continue to use the IP address. It's just that because the local machine access no longer opens the browser I began looking at what changes were required to do remote access. None apparently.
